ABBA turned 50 today
March 30th, 2022 under ABBA. [ Comments: none ]

ABBA is one of the most beloved bands in the World. They have had several massive hits like Dancing Queen, Take a Chance on Me, SOS, Fernando, and one called Mamma Mia. The last tune became a Broadway musical that was adapted into a movie that earned a sequel.

Pretty impressive. So we should honor them, especially when the quartet hit a huge milestone like they did today. The band shared this message, “It’s a very special day today! 50 years ago ABBA started their journey together when they recorded their song ‘People Need Love.'”

So let’s put on our Boogie Shoes (Yes, I know that is a KC and the Sunshine Band song) and belt out Voulez Vous to the person we want to sleep with. If we have no one, then we can just do Winner Takes All or Waterloo or any of their other hits.


Mamma Mia! Get your boogie shoes on Dancing Queens cause ABBA is back!

It is has been 35 years since ABBA silenced themselves, but the four of them have found their voices again. They broke the spectacular news on social media today by saying, “The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday.

“It resulted in two new songs. One of them, ‘I Still Have Faith in You,’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December. We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.”

In the words of their last hit, “Thank You for the Music” That and Gimme, Gimme, Gimme more. This Dancing Queen is willing to spend Money, Money, Money on their new tunes.

Heck if it does really well, maybe other Disco acts will ask us to Take a Chance on Me too. Am I the only person who loves Disco?

BTW I wonder if the sequel to Mamma Mia had something to with the four of them finally reuniting and working on new music.


Mamma Mia! Mamma Mia is closing on Broadway.
April 9th, 2015 under ABBA, Broadway, Mamma Mia. [ Comments: none ]

It’s a sad day on the Great White Way because the curtain is coming down on Mamma Mia! in September according to Playbill. The curtain went up on the Broadway musical written around Abba’s music in 2001 and will end a month before its 14th anniversary and 5,765 performances. While that is a long run for any show, it is not long enough for this wonderful musical turned in to a movie. At least we can take some solace that it will go down in history as the 8th longest running Broadway show and it will play on for one last summer!


Mamma Mia! comes out on DVD today!!!

Mamma Mia! the fun movie of the summer is finally out on DVD today and it includes the feature to sing along with the songs! I don’t know about you, but I already know all the words to their songs! But how much fun is it to sing along with Meryl Streep and Colin Firth as they bolt out Abba tunes!
I so want the Mamma Mia! DVD…hint hint!


Mia Mamma Mia movie has their man

Variety is reporting that Pierce Brosnan will be Meryl Streep''s man in the movie version of Mamma Mia. "I said yes right away because it meant working with Meryl Streep," Brosnan told Daily Variety. "Secondly, I saw the show with my family in London, and found it just so wonderfully happy and joyful, and so pitched in time forever in the 1970s. What a kick in the pants, to be able to go off and spend time with Meryl on some Greek island, singing ABBA songs." Producer Judy Cramer said this "Pierce brings a certain smooch factor and we think he'll have great chemistry with Meryl in a romantic comedy. He is just the perfect choice."  I am curious to see how Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep will handle the singing , but then agan several non-singing actors have excelled at singing roles, like Reese Witherspoon.
